Cheers and Tears as Mediazone Group Releases Hong Kong’s Most Valuable Companies 2010
After much speculation on which companies would eventually make the prestigious annual list, Mediazone Hong Kong finally released the first copy of this year’s flagship publication titled Hong Kong’s Most Valuable Companies 2010.

Forty-Eight companies successfully reached this year’s finish line disappointing 101 others who were eliminated in the last round of the publisher’s stringent judging process.
Each year the Mediazone Group picks less than 50 winners from an initial list of 11,000 international and local brands (from HK & China’s top 12 industries) with a presence in Hong Kong. The winners are then interviewed and covered within the pages of Mediazone’s popular annual titled Hong Kong’s Most Valuable Companies – the territory’s only surviving business title widely accepted by the business elite and the public sector in Hong Kong, Macau and China.
This year’s edition is widely regarded to be an editorial coup as the edition boasts of China’s prime minister as its Man of the Year. It also carries an exclusive report on Macau’s new leader and Taiwan’s president, Ma Ying-Jeou.
In a strict departure from a 10-year old tradition, MZG CEO Glenn Rogers (who himself conducted some of the interviews made his closing remarks on each of the winners, in his broadcast to the world press last night. We reproduce them here.
